FROM THE TEACHER
Thank you to all of the parents who attended our Open House this week. If you were unable to attend and would like some more information on the who’s what’s and where’s of our classroom please feel free to set up a meeting with me to go over the information.
We are still learning the rules here in our classroom and our new routine. Please remember that we are a class of 16 students and some adjustment time may be needed for your child to learn how to behave in the elementary school setting.
ICE CREAM: Please read the 1/2 sheet of paper in your child’s folder about ice cream. Students are allowed to purchase ice cream in the cafeteria on Fridays. In order to do this you must sign the paper and return it. Also your child must have enough money on their account to pay for all purchases. If you owe money on your lunch account and you send in a dollar for ice cream the money will have to go towards the money owed and your child will not be able to buy their ice cream.
BIRTHDAYS ; We know that some parents like to share their child’s birthday with their school friends. You are welcome to bring in pudding cups, cookies, ice cream or fruit snacks for our class to share during snack time. Please be aware that we are a no cupcake or cake school. Publix donates cupcakes once a month for the children who are celebrating their birthday during that month.
PICTURE DAY ; Picture day for Kindergarten is Tuesday, August 21. All children will have their picture taken to be used in the Year Book. If you wish to purchase pictures an order form will be sent home next week.
LANGUAGE ARTS: We are currently working on our Zoophonics unit. We have learned the sounds for the letters a – g in the past two weeks and will continue learning a letter a day until we reach z. When we complete our Zoophonics unit we will begin at the beginning of the alphabet and spend more time on each letter. Your child will be responsible for learning 75 of the list of 100 sight words that have been given to us by the county. We will begin working on the first 5 words next week. The first 5 words are: I, go, we, a, see. We will put a copy of the list in the back of your child’s orange folder as soon as we are able.
MATH: We are currently working on numbers to 10. The students will learn to recognize and write the number as well as learning how to count that number of objects and label them. We will continue to work on our numbers to 10 for the next 2 weeks.
INTEGRATED STUDIES: This week we have been working on school rules and colors. Next week we will start a unit on The Pledge of Allegiance, the American flag and Georgia flags.
Have a great weekend!
